I just can't understand why the MT is not enabled / config by default and distributed with the standard app, it is just insane to try to run these monsters without the MT on.


Its only defined by the user, smaller runtimes are not affected by the -t command and are slower in runtime. Also every user has different amount of cores.


There are many mt projects that provide tasks/programs able to detect and use the available cores with their mt apps depending on each member machine. Obviously here it would only be interesting for these "long" tasks, not all apps.

Having to play around with config file (and I remember this one is really not easy to do) really limits the potential number of users willing to try to do this.

I did the app_config thing, I'll see what happens the next time I get some SRBase in my machine.

Thanks.

Regarding the mt : now I remember that, I even think I had implemented it long time ago. But obviously it got lost in my boinc setup somehow...

I will look at that solution again, thanks.


@Conan: I'm afraid that this task running on your machine is lost, when mine terminated (normally) it had been running at 99,99% for some time already but it was several days overdue, and the assimilator or validator (or whatever it is called) had no mercy...

Strangely the other 3 were still running at 99,99% when I decided to kill them - it made no difference for credit, maybe it did a difference for "science" and it was silly to do that by that time after waiting so long, but I was upset.

I don't understand "just use mt" ?

Yes I have an iMac (late 2009), HT is not an option here (you can't switch it off).

It is a problem ?

I think I remember this is not the first time I have that issue (never ending long 2 task), I have removed that app in my preferences.


(btw I forgot to say "hello" but i was a bit upset, sorry for that)

More than 11 days of calculation and "task declared too late" = 0 credit

WTF !!!

I had other 3 running with same duration, I just canceled them.

What a poorly developed application.
